Our cottage is located only two blocks from Seaside's town square where you can enjoy dining, shopping and entertainment, and less than 2 blocks to tennis, pool & fitness center. Enter Snail's Pace through the screened in porch complete with love seat, chairs & tables that brings the inside out into the wonderful Seaside weather - a great place for your morning coffee or just great conversation.

We had a great time. The house is great & has games, beach toys and chairs and baby items all there if needed. That helps tremendously by cutting down on rental fees for those items & having to pack. I wish SandpiperVR would have offered the same discount package that Seaside Cottage Rental Agency offered for the Seaside School 5k and Half Marathon weekend. They offered stay 2 nights and get 3rd free I also think the passes for the swimming pools & fitness center should be complimentary year round, not just during peak season. We really liked the house Snails Pace and hope to stay there again!
My husband and I loved our stay, it's the perfect cottage for the 2 of us. The location is ideal. The owners display their Texas hospitality with some extras: a well stocked kitchen, even tho we didn't cook much, and a good coffee maker, very important! The mattress is firm, and there's ample linen. The only recommendations: please pad the king headboards, as pointed wood can be dicey. Also some instructions on the TV would help. Maintenance was out in 3 minutes to figure it out. Sandpiper is great. Looking forward to coming back!
Loved the cottage and would happily return! Suggest an updated kitchen table (wobbly, doesn't fit the space well), an ottoman for the porch (enjoyed this space immensely), and a small laundry basket - these are minor and would not keep us from renting in the future but would make the place more comfortable. Sandpiper app was nice but inconvenient because messages came from several different email addresses leading up to our stay and then all messages were not in the app making searching for messages difficult. If listing on VRBO why not use that app - easier for this customer to have all messages in one place. Disappointed about the amenities pass and will state in our VRBO review - not a good value. We loved Seaside and will definitely return.
Snails Pace is a great retreat! It is a very short walk to both the beach, and the town center. The home is very clean, well furnished, and up to date. In the mornings I brewed up a pot of coffee, pored myself a cup, and two minutes later I was at the beach enjoying the cool breeze and my java. One evening we watched a lightning storm from the enclosed "crows nest". It was a great light show. In real estate they say the key to a good property is location, location, location. Well, Snails Pace has both location and comfort. Highly recommend!
Our first time at Snail's Pace, and it was wonderful! This is our third trip to Seaside, and Snail's Pace was the best yet. The house is beautiful and located conveniently close to the private beach and the square. Having small kids, the location was a huge plus! The house amenities and furnishings are first class and make for an even better stay. Could not ask for more! We are already looking forward to coming back next year! Thanks for everything!
We enjoyed our stay for 4th of July week. We loved the festivities on the 4th. Snails Pace was perfect for the three of us. We enjoyed the close proximity to beach and town. We were welcomed by Sandpiper greeters and encountered no problems during our stay. Will definitely return!
